Summary
    Working with Grief and Traumatic Loss: Theory, Practice, Personal Reflection, and Self-Care provides clinicians with a wide range of personal loss and grief examples from seasoned therapists while also considering grief through the lens of diverse cultural, religious, and theoretical perspectives. This unique text shares practicing clinicians’ personal journeys of loss in myriad forms, including spousal, child and parental death, suicide, genocide, mass disasters, loss of physical health, miscarriage and beyond, in order to strengthen the frameworks through which grief is viewed, help readers more deeply understand its global context, and emphasize the relevance of personal experience when engaging in practice.

    Opening chapters review historical and modern theories of grief and loss, bereavement, and mourning rituals, as well as current evidence-based interventions and promising new practice methods. Later chapters transition from theoretical constructs and current research to intimate, personal stories of loss from licensed therapists, such as psychologists, marriage and family therapists, and social workers who experienced loss while in practice.

    Readers are introduced to a wide range of perspectives on grief, loss, and death with emphasized viewpoints from worldwide religions such as Judaism, Islam, and Buddhism, and countries such as Taiwan, Kenya, and Guatemala. Readers learn about the importance of integrating self-care into practice and discover strategies for continued self-reflection practices to maintain personal and professional health while simultaneously supporting clients through their grief journey. The book features classroom exercises and an annotated bibliography to facilitate additional learning opportunities.

    Working with Grief and Traumatic Loss is an ideal resource for social work, psychology, counseling, marriage and family, and grief and loss courses, as well as clinicians interested in deepening their practice.
